I have Problem with my PC which is not Boot well When I attempt to boot, it will take anywhere from 1 to 4 times to properly boot into Windows.

After few times when i opened my pc it says in black screen "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key" i already checked the disc room if there's any cd on it and i checked also the usb port but there is nothing inserted in the ports so i assumed that the problem in my pc is inside of the tower.but it's not working and i just supposed that my hard disk also corrupted i am so much upset what to do now.

If the system boots at all now, copy your files and settings to a backup drive now.

Then you can see if your system has a drive checking utility in the BIOS. If not you can use another program to test it, this should work http://hddguru.com/software/2006.01.22-HDDScan/

If the drive is usable after it boots, you can try to clone the drive to a new one and not loose anything (this is AFTER you backup your files NOW this second when you read this). Clonezilla is a nice free program you can use for that.

If you can't get that software to work, check in the BIOS for a disk check utility, or a downloadable one from the PC vendor. If you can check what brand of hard-drive you have, that vendor may have a utility as well.

SATA is not a brand, it's the interface it uses. Brand would be Seagate, Hitachi, etc...

You said you already copied your data to another drive. Now you want to find out if your current drive is usable or not. To do that you need to find out the brand of the hard-drive and see if the vendor has a disk scan utility. If it's an IBM computer, they do have a utility CD you can download that has a hardware scanner, including a disk check.

Or just buy a new hard-drive and restore the operating system on that, would be safer to do anyway.

I did describe it. Go to the hard-drive vendor's web site, or the computer vendors, look for a drive check utility, it should be downloadable as an iso file for you to make a disk from.

You may not want to buy a new drive, but if you want your computer to work and not crash and lose your data, you may need to.

Not sure what you are asking, the name of the vendor would be on the computer, the websites are almost always www.VENDORNAME.com

Jetchan I think so that you have a critical problem with your hard disk you should be used a third data recovery software .

Actually i suggest you about third party data recovery as you not satisfied with the answer of Mr Hang.

There are so may software just used Google and put your desire Keyword you can find out some list of software choose any of them in your case of Hard disk you can search with "Hard Disk recovery Software"
